“A growing source of excellence”

(Harlequin glorybower)

Clerodendron trichotomum is a deciduous large shrub / small tree originating from West China, it was first introduced to the UK in the 1880s and has been a hit ever since. The shrub offers interest all year-round, with both it’s flowers and berries.

The Clerodendron trichiotomum offers a slightly more exotic interest into the garden, with it’s fragrant bright white flowers that appear mid-late summer, yielding a lingering spice perfume in the mid-summer air.

The berries on the Clerodendron trichotomum provides us with distinct autumnal joys. Held open in bunches the bright blue berries are set like jewels in a crimson, fleshy star.
